“Insurance: Connected”

Last year's forum posed a question: “Will digital insurance (InsurTech) disrupt traditional insurance processes and products in the next 5 years?”

We have received an unequivocal answer: “No – it's happening now.”

Large insurers have segregated digital teams from core IT to roll out new processes. New entrants, who operate exclusively on digital platforms, are offering new, bespoke products and services.

The new drivers are Millennial and Gen Z consumers who run their personal and professional lives off mobile platforms. Their message to insurers is simple: “Insurance must be as connected as we are.”

Relying on experienced digital practitioners and analysts, the 2017 Insurance-Canda.ca Executive Forum will share invaluable experience and expertise to help you respond to this unprecedented environment.

Presentations by thought leaders, including ...

Keynote: “The Future of Insurance is InsurTech”

Matteo Carbone

Matteo Carbone, Principal, Bain & Company

According to Matteo Carbone, insurance companies have to become “InsurTechs” in order to reach strategic objectives. He believe that we will see a completely changed insurance sector in the medium-term. But this may be more nuanced than many assume.

Digital transformation goes way beyond simply eliminating “the middle man.” The amplitude of the digital transformation happening in the insurance industry is widespread and encompasses all of the phases of the insurance value chain, from underwriting to claims. Every insurance sector player, whether it's a reinsurer, a carrier or an intermediary, ought to pose this question: how should the insurance value chain be reshaped by using the new technologies at hand?

In this session, Carbone will discuss his classification framework for InsurTech, including a new paradigm – connected insurance – which will yield 4 main benefits:

  • Frequency of interaction;
  • Bolstering the bottom line;
  • Knowledge creation;
  • Sustainability.

Carbone will include a review of outcomes from insurers involved in his recently formed Insurance Observatory.

Matteo Carbone is a principal with Bain & Company; he is also the founder of the Connected Insurance Observatory and a global InsurTech thought leader.
